BALTIMORE – Gleyber Torres dominated the Orioles last year, hitting 13 lobsters in 18 games. By 2020, Torres was tougher against Baltimore.
On Wednesday, the Yankees won the shortstop and left the fourth 8-6 wins in the Camden Yards in the fourth inning after beating the right elbow in the first row.
The Yankees said the X-rays were negative and Torres suffered a bruise, which is good news for the shortstop, which was replaced by Tyler Wade.
Aaron Boone called the injury “every day” and Torres said he decided to leave the field because the injury affected his throw.
Boone said Tommy Kahnle is unavailable on Thursday and the team will provide an update to right-handers on Friday. Kahnle has only done one season so far this season, hitting the side in eighth place without a goal to protect his one-time lead over the nations in Sunday. The bull is already without Aroldis Chapman, who was relegated to COVID-19.
When the Astros were found guilty of using electronics to steal characters in 2017, no players were disciplined under the Major League Baseball agreement, which aimed to encourage players to cooperate.
Sources confirmed on Thursday that MLB and the players’ association had reached an agreement allowing Commissioner Rob Manfred to suspend players without having to pay for a similar crime, as first announced by The Athletic.
“I think it’s a good thing,” Boone said. “It’s something that has become a problem in our sport, of course – I think in some respects it is less so now, because after everything that followed this winter, there was quite a hard intervention.” I support everything we can do to make it competitive, fair. “
Some players seem to have taken matters into their own hands, with Dodgers’ relief Joe Kelly on Tuesday suspending eight games for throwing Astros.
Due to this season’s schedule, the Yankees would not appear before Houston until the playoffs. Torres asked what he thought of Kelly’s actions.
“I’d rather not comment,” Torres said. “I don’t want to say anything bad. If someone wants to do something, they will do it. I think that’s what it is. “
When the Yankees have their home opener against the Red Sox on Friday in the Bronx, they won’t have cardboard cutouts at the stands, as other teams – such as the Boston and Mets – have done this season. Instead, the team plans to place a tarpaulin on the Legends seats behind the home shield.
Phillies announced on Thursday that the coach and home club coach tested positive tests for COVID-19 and canceled training at their home park, and the Yankees’ plan was melting down again next week.
The Phillies, who played Marlins in Philadelphia over the weekend, were scheduled to play this weekend at the Blue Jays in Citizens Bank Park, but those games were postponed and the league said in a statement that it will “coordinate with health experts and Major League Baseball Players Association in planning sequel to the Phillies game. ‘ “
The Yankees were criticized for playing the Phillies this week before Philadelphia’s season was suspended. Instead, they moved on to a series of two games against the Orioles in Baltimore.
The Yankees are scheduled to play the Red Sox in the Bronx from Friday. Besides, Boone isn’t sure what his team will do.
“I don’t know anything,” Boone said. “Will it affect next week? I think it could have somehow. I have not received any guidelines from anyone. The league probably doesn’t know how it will develop next week. We focus here and now home on the Red Sox. “
Boone’s USC college coach Mike Gillespie died Wednesday night. Boone said Gillespie was among the reasons he was wearing no. 19, when he played – also with the Yankees.
